If you’ve never seen Donald Glover live, you guys really owe it to yourselves to go to a concert or a stand-up performance. Something. Anything. He’s so great live, it’s almost unbelievable. One of the reasons I feel so privileged to live in Los Angeles is because I’ve seen him rap live five times. Wednesday night at the IAMDONALD L.A. show, at his New Year’s Eve party, the IAMDONALD preview, when he opened for Mayer Hawthorne, and his very first show in Los Angeles, way back in August of last year.
I didn’t think he’d be able to top the preview tour, but boy, was I wrong. Completely wrong. Actually, the stand-up portion of the show left a lot to be desired, but the Childish Gambino portion was absolutely phenomenal. And a whole bunch of amazing people showed up to party with him. Danny Pudi, Gillian Jacobs, Yvette Nicole Brown, Reggie Watts, the chick that did the vocals on Not Going Back, and Blake fucking Griffin. Everything Wednesday night was so amazing, I needed almost 48 hours to recover from the show until I felt the need to blog about it.
The set list was really solid too, he did the entire EP, the most popular songs from Culdesac (Do Ya Like, Put It In My Video, I Be On That, etc.), the first verse from ‘Bitch Look At Me Now,’ the first verse of ‘Yes’ (!!!), and a few singles like The Longest Text Message and his Rolling in the Deep remix. With John Legend’s voice. And crowd participation for the clapping beat. Yeah. It was mind blowing. I think this tops anything else I’ve seen him do. Even the jokes were new for the stand-up portion, which surprised me because I was honestly expecting stuff to be recycled from the preview tour. My only real knock on the stand-up was that he probably only did about 10 minutes. 
I got a “ALWAYS BE DOPENESS” hoodie, made Kevin a fan of Donald, met tumblr people, and bumped into an old acquaintance who turned out to be really cool. It was just a really amazing night, and I can’t really describe it any other way.
